Wine lovers have their pick of bottle of the month clubs but for whisky lovers, there is The Director's Cut for members of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society in England. The Scotch Malt Whisky Society is a membership group which bottles only single casks from a range of 125 malt whisky distilleries. Each month, Society's Directors, Paul Miles, Kai Ivalo and Anne Griffiths, get together to personally hand-pick a bottle from a selection of the very best single cask, single malt whisky. The Society bottles around 20 different single casks each month so this alleviates the decision process and can expose subscribers to whiskies they have never even heard of or thought of trying. Members tell the Society the amount they wish to spend per bottle, either £50 or £75 and after 12 months members will receive an extra bottle as a thank you.
